Answer: 
To remove the stainless steel clamp rings, use a pair of needle nosed pliers to straighten the tab on the ring and peel the ring off.

Cut the pipe off within 1/4" or so of the fitting. The stick the dull jaw into the fitting and close down on the ring with the sharp jaw, and it cuts it cleanly. Then do the same thing on the other side of the ring and the ring bends open and you can pull it right off. The harder part is pulling the little nub of PEX pipe off the fitting, but strong fingers or a pair of pliers can easily accomplish this. The people who don't like this tool apparently: 1. Haven't read the instructions, or 2. Are trying to cut stainless-steel rings (like the cinch rings), or 3. Are just plain stupid :-) I agree the things appears to be fairly cheaply built, but it doesn't seem to take that much stress, and if it breaks, I'll bring it back to H-D and get a new one.

Like some of the negative reviews, I too have had trouble getting a crimp ring off. The key is to simply keep moving around the ring. After 4 or 5 attempts the ring will be so deformed that you can slide it off or it will snap somewhere. Once you have the ring off, crimp around the PEX to help loosen it up and you successfully saved a fitting. It doesn't take too many errors for this tool to pay for itself.

Sometimes when using it, the cutter doesn't stay aligned and slips causing a twisting motion, resulting in the ring not being cut. Suggestion to SharkBite - if the rivet, bar and ring mechanism that holds the upper and lower pieces together had less 'play' the tool would work much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from everything from sharkbite is quality The biggest part of the negative reviews you might see here is, the fact that in order for this tool to properly work you first need to provide access to the end of the fitting you are trying to remove the crimp ring from and insert the tool into the tube end of the fitting, alot of people are trying to cut the band from the outside of the fitting. Most of the crimp ring removal tools are very effective (sharkbite, conbraco or apollo, sioux chief) The biggest problem is that people think these tools are designed to remove the ring without cutting the tubing first in order to insert the anvil side of the cutter into the inside of the fitting, be it brass, copper or poly. There is alot of information available for pex type plumbing on u-tube. I really recommend people review the project instead of just doing it, it can really save alot of money in damages in the future and most insurance companies are now requesting to physically see the defective part before they will cover a claim because their insurance companies can go after the plumber or deny the home-owner do-it yourselfer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crimps or clamps. Having read the reviews, I think people are confused with Crimps and Clamps. Clamps you cannot use this Crimp Ring removal tool. Clamps have a little tab sticking out that needs to be bent straight in order to remove it. See the video by Sharkbite. Crimps, the rings, can only be removed by this tool. Hence, Crimp Ring Removal tool. Crimp rings and Clamps are two totally different ways of securing Pex tubing to connections.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job easily! I'm not sure how anyone can give this tool a bad review. You need a little hand strength to squeeze it but it cuts right through the copper rings. The second "cut" bends the ring open for easy removal. The ingenius design prevents the jaws from damaging the barbs of the fitting, all while a portion of the pex tube is still secured in place. I think if anyone has had trouble with it working, they had the cutting jaw on the wrong side: the skinny jaw goes inside the tube while the cutting edge goes on the outside (otherwise you're trying to cut through the brass fitting...not going to happen).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DOES NOT WORK ON 1/2' RING I invested in this tool and other Sharkbite brand PEX related tools when I decided to re plumb my house after an issue with a broken pipe in my slab built home. I was happy with everything but the crimp ring removal tool. I made a couple of bad crimps while doing this job and I noticed right away the crimp ring removal tool didn't work at all for me. It started out as no big deal to me I just grabbed a new fitting and kept going with the job. Close to the end of the job I was short two 3/4 x3/4 x1/2 T fittings and it is 9:00pm, too late to go back to home depot and I really wanted to finish that day. So I pick up the two fittings I discarded and was determined to get those rings off. What I noticed was the tool worked great on the 3/4" rings but not at all on the 1/2" rings. I mean not at all! I tried it every way I could think of. I finally came to the conclusion that the different thickness of the 3/4" PEX vs the 1/2" PEX tubing was the issue. I cut the 1/2" rings off with a pneumatic die grinder and cut off wheel. The gap left in the tool when closed was too wide to allow a cut all the way through the 1/2" ring because the tubing was thinner than the 3/4". Basically the tool want close far enough to cut the 1/2" ring. I will be returning this to Home Depot and getting my money back. I have seen a tool online that has a selection for 1/2" or 3/4" rings with good reviews. I will be ordering this one.
